Gloucester's Dave Lewis makes his first England Under 20 start against Scotland at the IRB Toshiba Junior World Championship in Tokyo tomorrow (Tuesday) alongside three club team mates including Henry Trinder (pictured).
The scrum half won his first cap off the bench when coach Mark Mapletoft's side opened the tournament with a 43-0 victory over hosts Japan last Thursday.
Now he takes over from Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers) as England freshen up their side with nine changes of personnel.
Into the backline come Lewis and his Gloucester teammates Henry Trinder and Charlie Sharples, with Will Hurrell (Leicester Tigers) on the wing and Rob Miller (Newcastle Falcons) at fly half.
Up front there are first starts for props Ben Moon (Exeter Chiefs) and Shaun Knight (Gloucester), lock Graham Kitchener (Worcester Warriors) and blindside flanker Courtney Lawes (Northampton Saints).
Centre Luke Eves continues as captain while Leeds Carnegie flanker Calum Clark sits out a second game. Prop Joe Marler (Harlequins) starts a two-match suspension following his sending off in the opening match.
England beat Scotland 20-6 at the end of this year's RBS U20 Six Nations but the side is radically different this time round.
Only five of the team that started against the Scots that night at Worcester reappear at the Prince Chichibu Stadium: fly half Miller, try-scorer Trinder, captain Eves, prop Moon and No.8 Chris York.

With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees, speaking to GRTV after the 35-10 over Zebre, was happy with the bonus point win over the Italian side but admitted Gloucester will need to tighten up for the return fixture in Parma.
Matt Kvesic was a try scorer and recipient of the Man of the Match award in Sunday's 35-10 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over Zebre. He praised the Italian side for their spirited opposition and admitted that next week's return game will be a tough one.
After a tense opening half hour in Parma, the game turned just before half time as the home team had David Odiete red carded and Gloucester took full advantage, running in three second half tries to secure the bonus point and the victory over Zebre by 32 points to 16.
